The part-time reporter for Prabhat Khabhar newspaper was killed in Khunti district, Jharkhand state, according to media reports. Members of the People's Liberation Front of India (PLFI), a breakaway Maoist faction, claimed responsibility.

In a letter found in Singh's pocket, the PLFI said “"No one can work in the area without approval of the PLFI," according to media, adding that Singh had written about activities of the rebels for the past 16 years.
